Baby Clinic & Health Visitor
The practice holds a weekly baby clinic at Elvington Surgery on a Wednesday 2-3.30pm. The baby clinic is run by the practice health visitor Kitty Lamb. A GP is also available for consultation and the practice nurse runs an immunisation clinic.
All babies born to patients in the practice area are visited by the health visitor from the 10th day after birth and contact will be maintained thereafter by further home visits and developmental assessments in baby clinic.
Health visitors are qualified nurses with specialised training in child health, health promotion and health education. They are attached to GP practices and work alongside the GPs and practice nursing team to support families with young children. Some typical situations where the health visitor may be of help to you are:
- The health of your baby or young child
- The impact of a new baby in the family
- Your emotional well-being
If you would like to contact Kitty, her office is based at The Avenues Childrens’ Centre, Sixth Avenue, York. Telephone 01904 551760.
Dr David Lightwing, who has worked in the practice for 19 years, has now retired and we wish him well in the future. We are also pleased to announce that Dr Tim Longmore has now taken on the role of Senior Partner for the practice.
In addition to overseeing prescription management systems, Andy will be providing appointments for medication reviews and will also be available to answer any medicines related queries by telephone.
All GP practices are required to declare the mean earnings (e.g. average pay) for GPs working to deliver NHS services to patients at each practice, the required disclosure is shown within this article.
The surgery will be open on alternate Monday evenings (until 8pm) from January 2017, starting on Monday 16th January.
